Sims 3 - Ejecting

I want install my Sims 3 on my MBP but it keeps ejecting.

I bought it from HMV and it worked on my Desktop Mac, but doesn't seem to work on this MBP

Why is this?

Does your Macbook Pro read other discs properly?

I believe so, I haven't ever played a disc game on it before!

I'd try inserting other DVDs and CDs to see if it spits them out rather than assuming it works. You need to try both as it is common for a faulty drive to only read a CD or DVD as they use different lasers.

Even if it works with another DVD I'd try multiple DVDs. Sometimes when a drive is starting to go it will work with some discs and not others.

I think you could redeem the CD key on Origin and download it there? No need for the disc.
